Keeping Up

Just breezed through the NYPost's Page Six section to see what's happening outside my insulated and isolated and I guess impoverished world. I didn't know who most of those people were that they talked about. I am my mother after all. It always fascinated me that she didn't know who any of the important people of the times were. How can that be? Now I know. Of course it seems to me that the people she didn't know were a lot younger and better looking than the people I don't know. I don't think that money was so much of a factor though. Way back then there was such a thing as talent. I don't remember the equivalent of Paris Hilton back in my day. Which reminds me....she was never once mentioned in today's edition. What's up with that? Is she a little bit too old and in the way? We can hope.

Priorities & perspectives?

I used to know who all the actors were, who all the singers were, who all the supermodels were--now I know that Joe replaced Steve on Blue's Clues and it's never been the same.

On the other hand, I could possibly tell you the twenty largest ballet companies in the United States and whether or not the states they are in are good for homeschooling.

Sadly, even I know who Paris Hilton is, although I can't tell you why she is so important.

I got to flip through a celebrity magazine today and, besides Brangelina, I knew absolutely nobody!
